November 2013 End Of The Month Report

| | |
November was a predictably vigorous month for the blog. Bolstered by the review of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, it was an exciting month both in the blog and behind-the-scenes. It was something of a nailbiter for the Top Ten Of All Time and we wrote some exciting political/economics articles this month (please, check them out!). We were exceptionally excited that this month, we crossed the 1,000,000 hit mark! My reviews and articles have been hit over one million times and we couldn't be more thrilled by having readers who keep coming back! We’re looking to finish the year strong next month, so be sure to keep reading!

This month at W.L. Swarts Reviews The Universe, there were no additions to the Top Ten Of All Time, though the Catching Fire review missed by literally a dozen hits! This month, we put special emphasis on Hallmark ornaments, graphic novels, the musical works of Billy Joel and Madonna and Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. episodes! Thanks for all the "likes" for those posts, as well as all of the new hits on older reviews!

This month, we picked up one more subscriber! Thanks for joining our regular readership! We are always trying to get people to become regular readers and subscribe, so if you enjoy what you're reading, please subscribe by clicking on the right side of the blog to get updates with each posting. As well, if you read a review that really affects you, be sure to "share" it! PLEASE share a link to the blog, not the content of the article; this keeps people coming to the site and, hopefully, liking what they find once they are here! We're really growing our readership this year, so sharing and subscribing to the blog is an important way you can help! If you’re subscribing, please tell your friends about the blog!

In Novemer, the index pages were very regularly! The primary Index Page, which we try to update daily, lets you know what the featured review is and has an up-to-the-day tally of how many reviews have been reviewed in each category! Check it out!

If you enjoy the reviews, please consider clicking on the links in the reviews and purchasing items. We really appreciate all the purchases made through the blog as that keeps us going. Thank you so much! By purchasing items through the links on the blog, you sponsor my ability to continue reviewing. Holiday shopping picks up the online selling, so as you consider holiday shopping, please do so through my blog’s links to support the blog!

The Featured Review For The Month for November is: About Time!
Check it out!

The month of November had a lot of movement within the month and a couple of prior reviews that made the list. For November, the Top Ten Reviews of the month were:
10. Frozen
9. The Starving Games
8. A Perfect Man
7. Ender’s Game
6. Gravity
5. Enemies Closer
4. Thor: The Dark World
3. The Snow Queen
2. Compulsion
1. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

I pride myself on being an exceptionally fair reviewer, but one who is very discriminating. I believe that most reviewers are far too biased toward both what is current and toward unduly praising things. I tend to believe most things actually are average and they ought to follows something around a Bell Curve. Mine is a little lopsided, but not as lopsided as most reviewers I know (who would probably have peak numbers between ten and seven)!

For my reviews, the current count is:
10s - 282 reviews
9s - 405 reviews
8s - 770 reviews
7s - 855 reviews
6s - 775 reviews
5s - 1017 reviews
4s - 734 reviews
3s - 601 reviews
2s - 264 reviews
1s - 184 reviews
0s - 85 reviews
No rating - 58 articles/postings

There was a decent amount of movement this month, but no new entries into the Top Ten. At the end of November, the most popular reviews/articles I have written are:
10. Beautiful Creatures
9. Star Trek Into Darkness
8. Safe Haven
7. Oz The Great And Powerful
6. The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bone
5. Warm Bodies
4. Iron Man 3
3. Now You See Me
2. Tyler Perry's Temptation
1. Man Of Steel
